[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]A magical fairy kingdom filled with tiny treasures has appeared in the garden of Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice, much to the delight of youngsters who spend time at the centre.
The magnificent miniature world, complete with washing lines, a post box and an Eddie Stobart truck, was set up by fairy fanatic and hospice volunteer Angela Hall.
Angela, 60, who helps out in the Eden Valley Hospice Fisher Street store, was asked to become involved in the special project because she had created her own fairy garden at her Dalston home.
Jumping at the chance to create a new fairy estate, Angela embarked on a road trip across the country in search of donations and gifts.
And in the last few weeks the garden has really come to life, with children who are well enough painting stones to add to the kingdom and others visiting the garden to watch as work progressed.
“It has been hard work but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it,” said Angela. “I’ve been privileged enough to meet some of the children.
“One little boy asked me what I was doing and I told him about the fairies in my garden. I said the fairies had written me a letter saying their friends wanted to move to the area because it was so lovely and did I know anyone who could help them or anywhere they could go.
“The boy asked me what had happened to the letter and I said it was magic and just disappeared in a puff of smoke once I had read it. His eyes were on stalks.”
